Will old scars cause a problem with implanting?

edited August 2016 in Magnets
Time for my magnet implant is getting closer and there is only one thing I'm not sure about so thought I would ask.

When I was younger I had a mishap with a knife that severed pretty much everything in a few of my my fingers (middle finger, ring finger and little finger on my off hand). 3 surgeries over 3 days got everything working again although feeling didn't return for a few years. I'm planning on putting my magnet on my off hand ring finger and was wondering if the scar tissue will cause a problem. Picture of finger below.

Feeling is mostly normal. If anything where the surgery cuts meet the knife wound is a bit more sensitive then normal. You can also feel what I assume is scar tissue as kind of a lump under the skin where the cuts meets.

    Did you go ahead with this? If yes I'm curious to hear how your experience went, or if anyone else has information on this topic. I have an X shaped scar on my finger as a result of a fairly deep wound. Little or no loss of sensation.
    Accounts of people who have had implants removed and re-implanted at the same site could be interesting to read as well.
